01. In The Midnights

I ran with the dead and chased
And chased my own shadow
Built walls, walls of belief
Reaction from the fall
We are ones of will
Desperate and dying
I was, I was along
For the ride, the ride of the unaligned

I gave you every word to hold
On a deathless night
Sucking, bleeding, inside out
If I had gave in
I'd never live that down

I wanted to believe in everything I'm after
But I was drowning in the hell that I raised
And when there's nothing left to say
You won't need a reason
To kill these cancers that may come your way

Long cold wind hits face to remind you're
Not done, unloved, failure
Serves as lessons learned
Faith regained from plagues
What will I find in me?
I found, I found in the falls
In the falls, the falls of the unaligned

I gave you every word to hold
On a deathless night
Sucking, bleeding, inside out
If I had gave in
I'd never live that down

I wanted to believe in everything I'm after
But I was drowning in the hell that I raised
And when there's nothing left to say
You won't need a reason
To kill these cancers that may come your way

I ran with the dead
And chased my own shadow
Built walls of belief
I saw the dead rise

Rise! Rise!

I saw the dead rise, rise!
I saw the dead rise!
I saw the dead rise, rise!
I saw the dead!

Reflection dying with me
Reflection dies
Reflection dying with me
Reflection dies

I wanted to believe in everything I'm after
But I was drowning in the hell that I raised
And when there's nothing left to say
You won't need a reason
To kill these cancers that may come your way


02. Whitewater

The sky stars fell out and into graves
Breathing while dying
Companies of ghosts remain
Alone with the sea

And as they fade away

Late night hope and wish
Even now you're undressed in my sleep

Slowly the swells of light seep through
As we breathe in the darkened sky
And in times of grace replace my distaste
Signals flare and layers fade away

White water won't wash away
Done let it confuse
The road to soul is lonely at best
I've arrived at empty

And as it burns away

Late night hope and wish
Even now you're undressed in my sleep

Slowly the swells of light seep through
As we breathe in the darkened sky
And in times in of grace replace my distaste
Signals flare and layers fade away

You won't destroy me
Or break my will
You won't destroy me
Or break my will
Or break my will

And in times of grace replace my distaste
Signals flare and layers fade away
Slowly the swells of light seep through
As we breathe in the darkened sky
And in times of grace replace my distaste
Signals flare and layers fade away

Or break my will
Or break my will
You won't destroy me
Or break my will
Or break my will
Or break my will


03. Mercy and Grace

Untangle me from my detest
Untangle my wreck
Slowly but surely were dining in
A table full of regret

Alive! Inside!
Never thought I'd get back here
Starting at the bottom
Life extinguish life
Life extinguish life

Wallowing in this sinking ship
The water taking on
You and I and a bottle to get by
Unravel our song

Untangle me from my detest now
Untangle my death
Breath of the breathless onto my end
Choking the truth within

Alive! Inside!
Never thought I'd get back here
Starting at the bottom
Life extinguish life
Life extinguish life

Wallowing in this sinking ship
The water taking on
You and I and a bottle to get by
Unravel our song

And I never wanted to be quite like this
A slow steep hole that I'm in
And I never wanted to die like this
And I never wanted you to see
I never wanted you to see

Wallowing in this sinking ship
The water taking on
You and I and a bottle to get by
Forgive my soul

Life extinguish life (unravel our song)
Life extinguish life (unravel our song)


04. Death Renames The Light

I can't lose anything
I watched you run
From the demons that drown you
Wash the blood, blood, blood, from your hands
From the darkest of days to the deadliest sands

Now's where the liars will come
The broken, the beaten, the battered, the numb

I once wrote these things
So I could change from agonies in me
Then fell from grace and back again
Eyes awake all night
Death renames the light
Death renames the light
Renames the light

I once wrote these things
So I could change from agonies
Renames the light

I once wrote all these things
So I could change from agonies in me
Fell from grace, grace, grace, and back again.
Eyes awake all night
Death renames the light

Now's where the body will bleed
Gale forces the wind, heighten the sea

I once wrote these things
So I could change from agonies in me
Then fell from grace and back again
Eyes awake all night
Death renames the light
Death renames the light
Renames the light

I once wrote these things
So I could change from agonies
Until the end, pain, reveals it

Until the end, pain reveals
Until the end, reveals
Until the end, pain reveals
Until the end, reveals it

The light
Death renames the light
Renames the light

I once wrote these things
So I could change from agonies
I once wrote these things
So I could change from agonies


05. Anchors

Weighed in the balances
While night invests the sea
No god awaits, no god awaits
Still conscious as I bleed
Cast through waning memories
A greater love, a greater love
The only air I need

This will never end
Where these scars wrote stories
I'll hold this forever with Northern eyes

And I will never lose faith again
And I will never lose faith again

Where would we be without these anchors?
You can't quite believe oceans never ending

Ecliptic and shadowless
My hour of disdain
No god awaits, no god awaits
Still conscious as I bleed
Cast through waning memories
Anchors of hope, anchor my heart
In oceans never ending

This will never end
Where these scars wrote stories
I'll hold this forever with Northern eyes

And I will never lose faith again
And I will never lose faith again

Where would we be without these anchors?
You can't quite believe oceans never ending

This will never end
Where these scars wrote stories
I'll hold this forever with Northern eyes

Night will never look same!

Where would we be without these anchors?
You can't quite believe oceans never ending
Where would we be without these anchors?
You can't quite believe oceans never ending
Without this truth, without this truth

Without this truth
Anchors of hope, anchor my heart
Anchor
Anchors of hope, anchor my heart

Without this truth
Anchors of hope, anchor my heart
Anchor
Anchors of hope, anchor my heart

Without this truth
Anchors of hope, anchor my heart
Anchor
Anchors of hope, anchor my heart


06. Long Roads To Late Nights

Instrumental


07. Trenches

Reckless abandon, coming undone
Survive the swallow, decade of ruin gone

I found myself in trenches tonight
Regret runs wild as darkness kills
All the lights
All the lights have died
Slow dose of hell stripping what's left
Sleepless for days on end

And ingest life on all sides

I can't be reached in this soulless design
Capsized my insides, hours inch by
Inviting the lions to all take a piece
Destroyed by endless ends, looking to cease

Searching the city, to no avail
Can't find me anywhere, winds out of sail

I found myself in trenches tonight
Regret runs wild as darkness kills
All the lights
All the lights have died
Slow dose of hell stripping what's left
Sleepless for days on end

And ingest life on all sides

I can't be reached in this soulless design
Capsized my insides, hours inch by
Inviting the lions to all take a piece
Destroyed by endless ends, looking to cease

I need a search light to make amends
From the insides out, out, out, out, out
On the strength of its test
Full blooded sense of life, life, life, life, life

Ghosts remain on auto pilot
Looking to cancel out
Brief breath of air in darkness
Survive in doubt

I can't be reached in this soulless design
Capsized my insides, hours inch by
Inviting the lions to all take a piece
Destroyed by endless ends, looking to cease

And ingest life on all sides
And ingest life


08. Reviver

Another wave crashes down, found alone
They were always meant to... make amends

Another year comes crashing down
With all the weight and all the sound
Where the water exits high and leaves forgiven
It goes on and on and on

Wait, wait, can I get it back from this?
Unfold the lives, a haze dismissed
Where I couldn't remember
No I couldn't remember
The way I used to be

With this, always back alive
With this, always back alive
Left to write

I wait for angels, reappear (reappear)
To bring back bravery from fear (from fear)
And the silence, the grey
To resurface on us, and come what may

It took time to figure my escape
Withdraw pain and my distaste
When the battles became
More than I could take
And it goes on and on and on

Wait, wait, cause I'm coming back from this
Memories of life and loss exist
And I could always remember
Yes I will always remember
The way you used to be

With this, always back alive
With this, always back alive
Left to right

I wait for angels, reappear (reappear)
To bring back bravery from fear (from fear)
And the silence, the grey
To resurface on us, and come what may
And come what may!
And come what...

Head to the light, it's up to us, bring it!
Head to the light, it's up to us, bring it!
Fighting ourselves, just to break chains from
Fighting ourselves, just to break

I wait for angels, reappear
To bring back bravery from... (from fear!)

I wait for angels, reappear (reappear)
To bring back bravery from fear (from fear)
And the silence, the grey
To resurface on us, and come what may!


09. Caving In Spirals

I awoke to the sound of alarms
Delicate and caving in
Drenched in my own
This faith is coming with me

Days go by weary as we sleep
April has become the numbing heart I own
I'd bleed for this again and again and again

How I need for this candle to burn forever
Forever burn

Years go by and it's what I've learned
That no one's getting out alive
No one's getting out

To gather this romance
To hide from this wind, to love understatement
To hollow out the end

Days go by weary as we sleep
All the mercy I've begged at shames steps
I look for peace in this, for peace in all of this

And how I need for this candle to burn forever
Forever burn

Years go by and it's what I've learned
That no one's getting out alive
No one's getting out
And this chance to live is grown in
I'm not the walking dead and I'll
I'll never, never be

Strayed from distance
Time sets forward the dark
A fine light to one's true self
In a den with believers my position in decent
The name familiar at the heart of it all
At the heart of it all

White noise comes with voice
I risk the promise of giving up then giving in

Years go by and it's what I've learned
That no one's getting out alive
No one's getting out
And this chance to live is grown in
I'm not the walking dead and I'll
I'll never, never be


10. The Deserter

Take deeps breaths in and gather the night
A hole that's hardly summed up by taking away
Time unlocks the stall
When there's nothing left to lose
Nothing can be lost

I don't know if anything has changed
But the hope of that changes everything
Hope builds change

Isn't the place of the plagues
That surrounds me and my open graves
But it's the fate of the haze
That put darkness in my way I escape

I escape darkness in my own way

Fatal has become the solid fight
Unending endings that loom into my darkest
Light unlocks my falls
When there's nothing left to lose
Nothing can be lost

I don't know if anything has changed
But the hope of that changes everything
Hope builds change

Isn't the place of the plagues
That surrounds me and my open graves
But it's the fate of the haze
That put darkness in my way I escape

I escape darkness in my own way
I escape darkness in my own way

I escape darkness in my own way
I escape darkness in my own way

I don't know if anything has changed
But the hope of that changes everything
Hope builds change

Isn't the place of the plagues
That surrounds me and my open graves
But it's the fate of the haze
That put darkness in my way I escape

I escape darkness in my own way
I escape darkness in my own way


11. Waterhaul II

No matter how many nights we kill to save
Fires to flames
Chasing me through the poison rain
I lied awake and ran it over and over
And over and over to the quiet misery
Misery
When I let it breathe
I found gloss in this sobriety

Running to lights, the sounds of hearts crashing
Hopeless and taken in defense of my screams
Each moment, each second we're alive
We expand, we retract moving forward
As we love, we love
Ascending to be loved
Avoiding the collapse
Avoiding the collapse

Avoiding the collapse
Avoiding the collapse
The collapse
